Hollywood Blind Spots
Truck drivers have more blind spots than other motorists, simply due to the size and design of commercial trucks. Even though truck drivers have mirrors, they cannot see out of their rear windshield in the way that passenger motorists can. Unfortunately, the many blind spots on trucks can lead to accidents if drivers are not very careful about backing up, turning, and changing lanes.
If you have been injured by a truck driver because you are in the driver's blind spot, you may be blamed for the accident. While you are expected to use extra caution when driving around commercial trucks, however, truck driver negligence can also lead to accidents if drivers are not careful about their blind spots. If you feel that your accident was caused by a truck driver’s negligence, contact Flaxman Law Group to review your legal options. You may be able to seek compensation that can help you pay for medical bills, lost income, and other expenses related to your accident. By not pursuing a legal claim, you may not be able to recover the full amount of money that you need in order to pay for all these costs. Flaxman Law Group can help you understand whether you have a case in a free, no obligation consultation.
Why Do Traffic Accidents Occur Due to Blind Spots?
On Hollywood roads, there may be a number of situations where a car ends up in a truck’s blind spot and is damaged as a result:
- A car may be trapped between the curb and truck during a truck’s wide turn
- Two trucks may squeeze a car because the car is traveling between the trucks where drivers cannot see the vehicle
- A car may be unable to get out of a truck’s blind spot due to other driver’s actions
- A truck’s mirrors or visibility may be affected, limiting the driver’s view even more
